Baby Faces Blogfest! & NaNo Luddite Photos

Baby Faces Blogfest is here! Hosted by Trisha!
"What are the requirements?
Between December 2nd and 3rd, post a pic of yourself as a baby, and/or;
Tell us a story about when you were a baby (no doubt you can't quite remember it yourself, but you've probably heard some stories from other members of your family).
You can choose to do one or the other or both, depending on your mood on the day(s)."
Now this is embarrassing. I thought I had the perfect photo, me with chubby cheeks, in pink pyjamas with feet, lying on the sofa, but I can't seem to find the scanned version. So instead, here's toddler me, and I'll do the second half of the blogfest properly.

I wonder if any of you can help with this: When I was a baby, learning how to speak, I went up to my mom one day at the park and said something that can roughly be spelled as "Demisi vu vu children." To this day no one in my family has any clue what that means.

I also got my first and only stitches as a baby, when my mother was on the phone and I found the nail scissors, thought I'd cut my own nails, and sliced off the side of my finger. Ouch! As far as I know, today's stitches don't scar, but back then they did. I've got the ghost of two stitches on my right index finger.

Speaking of babies and childhood, I still love colouring books. I think I'll add these Dover Publications to my wishlist: historic sailing ships, Rackham's fairy tales, Celtic animals, and sea monsters.

And in adult news, NaNo is over!

I invoked the Luddite clause and validated at 52,000 words! Thank you very much to Zan Marie for being my validator!

Three notebooks at 60 sheets each, double sided

I average 10 words per line * 24 lines per page, which I round down to 200 (based on experience). The first notebook has 20 sheets of Druid's Moon and the last notebook is only half full so...

260 pages * 200 = 52,000 words

Let the typing begin!

I can't wait to get back to my regular schedule, and to read without feeling guilty that I'm not writing.

What are your December plans?
